  • Weekend digs....

    Just a little dig today, as I was supposed to be spending all day stripping the front room floor, but on the way back to the tool hire place, remembered that my local hospital radio station was having a clear out, and Caz *insisted* that we stop so I could have a quick dig. At least that's how I recall it.

    It had been going since 10am, and I only got there at 14:30, so god knows what I missed out on...but anyway for my £8 I got :

    Franck Pourcel Grande Orchestre - Concorde (EMI Pathe)
    Ahoy Pourcel haters, this one is a *cracker*, two very decent tracks on first listen and a lovely pic of Concorde on the sleeve to boot. Really, don't leave this one.

    Johnny Howard Orchestra - The World Of (Decca)
    At last, been a long wait to find one of these, but worth it in the end.... *what* a version of '...Billy Joe' !

    and the others...

    Paul Mauriat Orchestra - Stereo Spectacular (Philips)
    Jack Parnell - Braziliana (MFP)
    David Snell - Harp In Harmony (BBC)
    Various - The World Of TV Themes (Decca)
    Button Down Brass - This Guys In Love (Fontana)
    Harry Stoneham - Hammond My Way (Contour)
    Elvis Presley - Easy Come, Easy Go (RCA Camden)
    Graham Walker Sound - Famous TV Themes (Saga)
    Geoff Love - Big Terror Movie Themes (MFP)
    Alan Haven - Organ Magic (Embassy)
    The Kings Singers - S/T (EMI)
    Franck Pourcel - Dancing In The Sun (EMI)

    ...and a few 45s (Tricky Disco, Orbital, Massive Attack) in the bag too.

    Hope the weekend is seeing y'all right

            made my way to the Cattle Market despite rain&#39;n&#39;rugby, but a bit thin today. Even so, picked up a VERY nice 4-track BP/Shell EP of Themes From Fuel For The Seventies; it&#39;s credited to Shand Pictures Productions, comes in a pic sleeve featuring molecules, and the tracks are Line Up/Villa del Sol/Green Cheese/Giostra, all with songwriting credit FDH/Kevin. God only knows who&#39;s behind this, but it&#39;s damned good whoever it is. Anyone know??

            A couple of other nice bits, too:

            Edwards Hand: Stranded (RCA) [Revolution&#39;s Death Man and The Strife Is O&#39;er The Battle Done are full-on moog/psych mayhem - with Clem Cattini on drums]
            Sly &amp; The Family Stone: Fresh (CBS)
            Isaac Hayes: Tough Guys OST (Enterprise)
            Dudley Moore Trio: The Other Side Of... (Decca)
            Nu Yorica comp (Souljazz)
            Marcia Hines: Live Across Australia (Miracle) [dbl]
            World Of Twist: She&#39;s A Rainbow (Fluke Remixes) (Circa 12inch)
            a giant steam-powered turntable in warwickshire plays six foot cement recordings of Prince Albert's speeches to the rejoicing populace

              Grey Lynn Festival finds:

              Auger, Driscoll, Trinity - Best Of (my third Best Of for these guys with a different track listing yet again - nice to have &quot;Indian Rope Man&quot; now)

              Frank Zappa - Hot Rats (minting up...)

              Black Sabbath - Vol 4

              Peters and Lee (the one with She&#39;s About A Mover on it - saw it mentioned recently, but personally I think it sucks - I&#39;ve been spoiled by Roy Head&#39;s version probably)

              Some Dutch 2LP compilation that appears to be utterly dreadful from a cursory listen.

              J-Live - Satisfied? 12&quot;

              Don Cunninham - Something for Everyone (marked down re-ish...)

              Nice to see some records there amongst the tapa cloth and chintzy garden ornaments this year... couldn&#39;t find a cockney immigrant to sell me a decent ten dollar pair of sunglasses though, a great Grey Lynn tradition is broken.

                as for me:

                - Marvin Gaye &quot;MPG&quot; (Tamla) - Sealed. Not hard funk, but damn his is some seriously nice music
                -Gus Poole &quot;Soul Revolution&quot; (Novasonic) - A hammond organ piece that gets pretty churchlike, but has 2 hot ta&#39; deff tracks, one of which has drums for days&#33;
                -Charlie Earland &quot;Black Drops&quot; (Presitge) - 60&#39;s press
                -Ivan &quot;Boogaloo Joe&quot; Jones &quot;Right on&#33; Brother&quot; (prestige) - 60&#39;s press trade/doubles
                --Ivan &quot;Boogaloo Joe&quot; Jones &quot;Right on&#33; Brother&quot; (prestige) - 70&#39;s press, you may have guessed it, this is on the trades list too
                -Undisputed Truth &quot;Smokin&#39;&quot; (Whitfield)
                -Pharcyde &quot;Bizarre Ride Instrumentals&quot; (Delicious Vinyl)
                -Sam Lazar &quot;Space Flight&quot; (Argo) - Nice bop Jazz featuring a young Grant Green on guitar
                -Phil Ranelin &quot;Love Dream&quot; (Rebirth)
                -Pharoah Sanders &quot;Love In Us All&quot; (Impulse)
                -JB&#39;s &quot;It&#39;s not the Express (It&#39;s the JB&#39;s Monorail)&quot; (People) - finally got the last JB&#39;s I needed
                -Doug E Fresh/ MC Ricky D &quot;La Di Da Di&quot; / &quot;The Show&quot; (Reality) - trade/doubles

                and the schlock find of the week:
                Bobby Caldwell &quot;Do For Love&quot; (Cloud) - a red vinyl 45 from the cat in the hat thats shaped like a heart . The label has a message from some girl to her boyfriend dated from &#39;81. Had a picture sleeve and a 0.25 price tag so I had to pick it up.

                    Freezing bloody cold up here in t&#39;north, managed to drag myself out of bed and down to the indoor booter first thing this morning...

                    Spent the grand sum of 80 new pence, came back with (apart from blue fingers and snot-on-tap...) the following...

                    Gene Chandler &quot;Live On Stage&quot; (Action LP)

                    Apollo &quot;Astro Disco&quot; (Motown 12&quot - sounds a bit cheesy, but there are some nice breaks and instru&#39;s on the flip

                    Rudy Love &quot;Disco Queen&quot; (Calla 12&quot

                    Diane Hildebrand &quot;Early Morning Blues And Greens&quot; (Elecktra LP) ... got this on in the background now, all floaty folk and flutes... hmmm... not sure...

                    There&#39;s a market at 1pm this afto, might go give it a try ( if it warms up any&#33; )

                    If you're looking for a pristine copy then this isn't the one for you. The vinyl looks like someone has polished their brickwork with it and the label has been ruined by some fool with a pen.

                      That aint shlock mate, it&#39;s a nice find&#33;

                      It was released as a limited edition 10&quot; on Valentines Day. Not many pressed I think, bit of a collectors piece.

                      Bung it on the bay and it&#39;ll earn you a fair bit of buntz if the right people pick up on it.

                      I like the &#39;b&#39; side too - Love Won&#39;t Wait, a nice soul dancer.

                        Thanks for the info. Wow, I seriously only picked it up because I thought it was funny. The bobby Caldwell LP is pretty much a dollar bin find out here, and I just figuered that this couldn&#39;t be worth much more. It looks like it may be time to play the Ebay game, unless someone here wants to make a trade?

                              Finally went to one of those record fairs haveing not been to them in ages after previous very disappointing collections of stuff from the usual shops in Dublin.

                              Dion - Martin, Abraham &amp; John (Ace reissue - amazing easy version of Purple Haze - it shouldn&#39;t work but does)
